thunder in my hair

A thrill of thunder in my hair:
Though blackening clouds be plain,
Still I am stung and startled
By the first drop of the rain:
Romance and pride and passion pass
And these are what remain.

― G.K. Chesterton (and me)
rain today at Willow Manor


  1. the sweetest electricity tess! steven

  2. gosh and here I thought you wrote that beautiful line.......well you could have

  3. Way to spin a bad hair day into something completely badass GK....

  4. Chesterton and Belloc were great friends and collaborators. That makes him essential reading, in my book!

  5. I like your quotes! I'm not sure if I'm writing in raisins but we don't have rain here in Bristol although it's sure to come eventually! ;)
